Aurifil is a high-quality sewing thread known for its strength, durability, and low lint. Aurifil threads come in various weights, designated by a number on the thread spool.

Here are some standard weights of Aurifil thread and their typical uses:

  1. Aurifil 12wt: This heavy-weight thread is perfect for hand embroidery, applique, and decorative stitching. It can also be used for machine quilting and topstitching.

  2. Aurifil 28wt: This slightly lighter-weight thread is still strong enough for machine quilting and embroidery. It's also great for decorative stitching and topstitching.

  3. Aurifil 40wt: This is the most commonly used weight of Aurifil thread, and it's suitable for a wide variety of sewing projects, including piecing, quilting, embroidery, and general sewing.

  4. Aurifil 50wt: This is a fine, lightweight thread that is great for piecing, quilting, and general sewing. It produces a flat seam and is nearly invisible when used for applique.

  5. Aurifil 80wt: This is an extra-fine thread perfect for English paper piecing, applique, and other hand-sewing projects. It can also be used for machine embroidery and quilting.

Choosing the correct thread weight for your project is essential, as using a thread that is too heavy or too light can affect the look and durability of your sewing.

Aurifil threads are known for their high quality and versatility, and they are a popular choice among quilters, sewists, and embroiderers.
